October 6, SD Urban Indian Health is celebrating our 40th year in business! During this time we have accomplished full national AAAHC Accreditation and operate two Integrated Primary Care/Behavioral Health clinics, one located in Pierre and the other in Sioux Falls. This is a great day for the program and honors it staff and the patients that support us.
SDUIH is one of 14 Health Facilities in the Nation selected to participate in PICC (Pediatric Integrated Care Collaborative) with Johns Hopkins. Four staff members (Donna, Ellen, Barb and Stacia) are in Baltimore, MD for the first of three collaborative learning sessions. Our first project was creating a team storyboard.
The hard road to health care for American Indians
South Dakota Urban Indian Health (SDUIH) has become an official White Bison Training site. First training will take place on August 22-24, 2016. SDUIH will train facilitators to implement this video-based curriculum in their communities. The Medicine Wheel and 12 Step program was developed to provide a culturally appropriate 12 Step program for Native American people. This program was developed by White Bison, Inc. based on the Teachings of the Medicine Wheel, Cycle of Life and the Four Laws of Change.
This training will be held at our Sioux Falls clinic. Call 1-877-871-1495 to register or register online at www.whitebison.org
